    Starship Studios next pick is Tony Gilroy, screenwriter (and filmmaker). Tony will team with Michael Stackpole as co-writer. He brings experience as the writer of the Bourne series and also co-wrote R1

    With the 49th pick in the 2021 Star Wars Movie draft... The Studio With No Name selects... Sanaa Lathan, actress, New York, New York.

    Probably the hardest position to fill, I've been struggling all week with this. A jack of all trades, Sanaa has done everything from voice work for Family Guy/The Cleveland Show to Tony nominated Broadway performances. An expansive, multiple decade spanning career, I'm confident she can adapt to almost any role given to her.

    With the 50th pick in the 2021 Star Wars Movie draft... The Studio With No Name selects... Christopher Eccleston, actor, Langworthy, Salford.

    I was looking for someone who can fool audiences. As you'll see in the picture below, Christopher Eccleston can look quite menacing, or at the very least not friendly. But it was through The Leftovers, one of my all-time favorite shows where I realized just how incredible of an actor he is. So very capable of playing a warm, kind hearted and good natured character.

    For our next pick, Starship Studios selects actor Ben Daniels, to reprise his role as Antoc Merrick, Rebel X-Wing Pilot.

    Our story involves Merrick at an earlier point in his storied career that culminated in him rising to the rank of General, and Blue Squadron Leader.....

    He posted a status yesterday saying he'd be away for a few (I'm assuming he meant days). Unless he gave his picks to Royle we're probably gonna be doing a bit of waiting.

    He's posted since then so we will give him a bit of time. If we don't see him around soon(ish) we will move on and he can make a pick when he shows up.

    All good. We've made pretty impressive time already with no real delays.

    Hey y’all! My next pick will be an actor...

    Ben Kingsley!

    This is a slimy and manipulative character who I need a very convincing performance from. The way I am looking for him to play the role is like his performance in “Operation Finale” with Oscar Isaac.
    F383F1F9-3923-4DED-BB3C-A02B9CE5EFD3.jpeg
    Also thanks for waiting on me :) (My next pick probably won’t be for a little while (like a day or a little more) so bear with me...thanks!)

    Shoot, sorry for the delay men! There was some business north of the wall...

    Nights Watch Productions will select:

    Lin-Manuel Miranda (composer / actor)

    [​IMG]

    The man is a musical genius and I would love to see what he could do scoring an entire Star War. He's not a complete stranger to the galaxy far far away as he co-wrote Jabba Flow with JJ Abrams for TFA, and elsewhere I think he would add a really unique flair to some well-known themes.

    Again, sorry for the delay!

    Composer: Alan Silvestri
    [​IMG]

    Why?
    When you're looking for someone who has that John Williams style of touch, there's one other name that leaps to the front - Alan Silvestri.
    The man who scored Back to the Future, CHiPs, Dutch, Clan of the Cave Bear, Amazing Stories, Romancing the Stone, Flight of the Navigator, Predator, The Abyss, Forest Gump, Contact, Beowulf, The A-Team (film), Ready Player One, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame...to name just some.

    Chances are if you heard a score and thought it was Williams, but it wasn't, it was Silvestri. And if you grew up in the 80's then most of your cinematic music memory is likely to be toggling back and forth between Williams and Silvestri.
    Unlike Williams, however, Silvestri is able to dabble in the mysterious a bit more as well as the adventurous and boisterous.
    Also unlike Williams, Silvestri is still in circulation at 70 years of age.

    Most importantly, however, Silvestri, like Williams, is able to bring that big and bright orchestral sound to a film's score and give it that boisterous and adventurous flare that excites the soul.

    Cheers,
    Jayson
